Proverbs 28Goat's milk - Or, if thou chusest rather to keep thy goats, the milk will serve thee for food to thyself and family. In ancient times men used a plain and simple diet. But - By a wise and good prince. It like - Is like a violent rain or flood, which washes away the very seeds in the earth. He is the worst of all oppressors. Contend - Are so far from praising them, that they severely reprove them. Judgment - What is just and right. All things - Which are necessary to be known by them. Better - In a much happier condition. Causeth - That by evil counsel, or example, or artifice, draws them into evil. Rejoice - Are promoted. Glory - In that common - wealth. Rise - Are advanced to authority. Hidden - Wise and good men, who only are worthy of the name of men, withdraw themselves into obscure places. Alway - In all times, companies, and conditions. Oppressor - The tyranny of a prince, is a manifest sign of folly. Prolong - By God's favour, the peace and satisfaction of his own mind, and the hearty love of his people. Violence - That sheddeth any man's blood. Shall flee - Shall speedily be destroyed. Shall slay - None should desire or endeavour to save him from his deserved punishment. At once - Once for all; so he shall never rise more. Faithful - Who deals truly and justly in all his transactions. For - When a man hath once accustomed himself to take bribes, a very small advantage will make him sell justice. Evil eye - Is uncharitable to persons in want, and envious to those who get any thing besides him. Poverty - And consequently that he shall need the pity and help of others. The same - Is a thief and robber. Fat - Shall live happily and comfortably. Wisely - Distrusting his own judgment, and seeking the advice of others, and especially of God. Men - Righteous men are afraid to appear publickly.
